Donate by Phone

Gifts of Stock and Securities
A gift of appreciated securities held for more than one year can provide significant benefits to you as well as CommunityHealth. A gift of stock entitles you to a tax deduction for the market value of the donated stock (not just your cost basis). CommunityHealth can talk directly with your broker or financial adviser to facilitate the gift. The best and easiest way to make a gift of stock is to transfer the shares electronically from your account to ours.
All transactions should be directed to:
JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.
DTC Participant Number: 902
Credit Account Number: P72500
FFC Account Number: W72377000
FFC Account of: CommunityHealth
To ensure that you receive appropriate credit for your stock gift, please email Laura Ciresi Starr, Director of Development and Communications, or call 773.969.5918. with your information (including name, stock, and number of shares).
Leave a legacy of access to health care. You can designate all or a portion of your estate assets to benefit CommunityHealth. This option allows you to make significant gifts to a cause that is important to you without making financial sacrifices during your lifetime.
We encourage you to speak with your financial advisor about the best planned giving option for you, but here are the most commonly used planning giving options:
- Bequests: A bequest through a will or trust is the most common form of planned gift. A bequest allows an individual to make a substantial contribution to support a charity without diminishing the assets available to the donor during his or her lifetime. Because a charitable bequest is tax deductible for federal estate tax purposes, important estate tax savings can result for this type of give that may reduce or possibly eliminate one’s federal estate tax burden.
- Retirement Plan and IRA Designations: A donor may name CommunityHealth as the beneficiary of your retirement plan or IRA, or you may name a charitable remainder trust as the beneficiary with your children as income beneficiaries of the trust.
If you are currently drawing on your IRA in retirement, you may designate a portion of your required minimum distribution to CommunityHealth tax-free.
Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Contact your human resources department to determine whether your employer has a matching gift program and how to complete your match.
Honorary and Tribute Donations
Commemorate a special occasion with a donation to CommunityHealth. The special person you honor will receive a letter from CommunityHealth notifying them of your thoughtfulness.
When a loved one has passed away, consider having family and friends make a donation to CommunityHealth rather than sending flowers. CommunityHealth will send a personal thank-you to each donor, and we will also send the designated family a list of donors.
Create Your Own Online Fundraiser
We can help you create an online fundraising event for your friends or colleagues, to celebrate a special event or support a specific project at CommunityHealth. For more information, please call 773.969.5918.
